Alien invades Nationals Park on World UFO Day

Alien in Washington Nationals Presidents RaceWednesday marked the 67th anniversary of the Roswell UFO incident, and so of course, invading aliens marked the occasion by disrupting the presidents race at Nationals Park.

William Howard Taft was the first to spot the alien lurking near the bullpen, but the other presidents ignored his warnings.

The alien turned out to be no threat at all, and Teddy took the win.

Video: Abe shows no sense of humor on International Joke Day

Abe Lincoln cheats presidents race Nationals ParkOn Tuesday night at Nationals Park, Teddy Roosevelt stopped his fellow racing presidents on the warning track to read them the “Joke of the Day” in celebration of International Joke Day.

George, Tom, and Bill started laughing, but Abe Lincoln grabbed the joke from Teddy’s hands, tore it up, and raced for the finish line.

We knew Abe cheated. Apparently he’s also got no sense of humor.

Videos: Nats Park crowd chants “USA” as racing presidents act out USA vs. Belgium

Nationals racing presidents lead Nationals Park crowd chanting USA USANationals racing presidents lead Nationals Park crowd chanting USA USANationals racing presidents lead Nationals Park crowd chanting USA USANationals racing presidents lead Nationals Park crowd chanting USA USAAs they did before last week’s World Cup soccer match, the Nationals racing presidents acted out Tuesday’s upcoming match between Team USA and Belgium on Monday night at Nationals Park.

And this time, the crowd really got into it.

George Washington and Abe Lincoln represented Team USA on Monday, wearing their home white uniforms. They got off to a rough start, as “Honest” Abe had trouble handling the ball and tripped on the outfield warning track.

But Belgian defenders Thomas Jefferson and William Howard Taft (wearing red uniforms) weren’t able to capitalize. George held them up then broke away as Lincoln recovered and pushed the ball past them.

Washington took Abe’s pass and advanced the ball towards goalie Teddy Roosevelt (who was wearing his Hawaiian shirt). The Rough Rider managed to stuff Washington’s shot, but the Founding Father recovered the ball, put a fake on Teddy, and sent the goalie flying to his left as he passed to the charging Lincoln.

The Great Emancipator finished the job, then joined Washington in leading the Nationals Park crowd in a rawcous chant of “USA! USA!”

Here’s the finish line video:
